Cross Country Runs at Bennington

by Larry Mall

September 14, 2018

     Southern Cloud’s cross country Warriors were forced to endure a week off from meets, due to the Washington Co. Invitational being postponed from Thurs., Sept. 6, until Mon., Sept. 24, and went back to racing, Thurs., Sept. 13, at Bennington. The temperature was in the mid-80s, and a strong southerly wind met the harriers in the sunniest, warmest parts of the course.

     On the girls’ side, Jocelyn Buller matched her 13th place medal at the first meet of this season at Abilene, with an identical 13th place medal finish at Bennington, and knocked off nearly two-and-a-half minutes from her timing at Abilene.

     SC was missing three of their female runners, with Ashton Cooper, Kaitlyn Morris and Shea McMillan all down with illness, Morris and McMillan fighting the feel-bads for the whole week.

     For the boys, the stand-out was freshman Dusty Mason, running his very first cross country race. He learned in his first outing, the steps toward piecing together what can be his most successful stabs at the 5000-Meter distance, and posted a respectable time.

Girls Results—Jocelyn Buller, 13th place medal, 23:58; Taylor Cox, 38th, 30:15; Mallory Bellows, Did Not Finish

Boys Results—Dusty Mason, 38th, 21:03; Ryan Paillet, 61st, 23:47; Morgan Coleman, 63rd, 24:17; Carson Bellows, 66th, 25:14; Avery Wyatt, 68th, 25:40; Nevyn Gold, 72nd, 26:33
